Weather 10

Here are previous weather posts, and although today the sixth boro and surrounding land masses are experiencing the first serious snowfall this season, this post is not about that.  Rather, it’s about something I saw and felt yesterday, when it was 65 degrees F for a few midday hours.  65!! So here was the weather […]

Weather 9

Here was 8.  And here was yesterday.   The photo from yesterday–below–shows the near VZ Bridge footprint, and the far footprint can be seen here in a photo from a few weeks ago.    This morning, as I’m waking up, looks clear like the next few photos. It’s C. Angelo towing Sea Shuttle.  Part of […]

Weather 8

Here was 7.  In the past week, the sixth boro has seen lows to about 5 . . . like last Monday morning, and highs in the low 50s.    And then there’s been serious fog, as bowsprite captures here.  This morning was clear and mild, almost springlike.  Here was the north end of the […]

Weather 7

Here was number 6 in this series.  It occurred to me this afternoon to rename the whole series “weather overwater,” as a tip of the hat to Dr.  Jeff Masters and his site.  His 18-minute TED talk at the link with his name on it is worth the 18 minutes.   And what do you […]

Weather 6

Here was 5. Yesterday before noon I saw rain, sun, and then rain again.  Afternoon was the same.  The foto below of Norwegian Star I took at 16:06. 16:21 16:21 . . . a rainbow spanned from Red Hook Brooklyn to Newtown Creek Queens, although I couldn’t see the Queens’ leg. 16:35, and by this […]

All fotos here were taken by Scot Surbeck and come thanks to Julian Marsano, who blogs as PioneerSailing.  The moral of the story is that extreme weather can move in quickly, as happened two weeks ago when a squall galloped into the sixth boro at 30 mph, bringing in 45+ mph gusts.    Manhattan Sailing […]

Three days after the stunning but dark color fotos by bowsprite,  it’s St Patrick’s Day, and weather in the sixth boro has returned color, blue skies.  Pegasus is radiant, waiting for shaft, prop, and splash.  Doubleclicking enlarges most fotos. Jade bluegreen Maersk Tangier gets bisected by the wall of the drydock supporting Pegasus.  Note the […]

Weather 3

Sunday March 14, Red Hook (Brooklyn) and looking to the southwest.  The bulker beyond Houma is Darya Shanthi, Weeks crane 529 offloading  salt. Sky darkens quickly over Staten Island.  The dark plume apparent beyond  the Bayonne can be seen zoomed in here, probably from the Bayway refineries although it looks like an ominous cyclone.  For […]

Weather 2

Technically this is a post about the effects of weather;  I couldn’t document the wind-driven snow because it happened in darkness.  Maybe you witnessed it; I took the coward’s way out and crawled into bed early.  I trudged out early to record these effects like the wreath on Liberty IV having more frosting than two […]

The sixth boro has had a lot of weather this past month;  Bowsprite‘s drawing and writing about it.  I’m just trying to weather it.  And Andres has arrived. Hmm.  “Weathering storms”  . . . now that phrase puzzles me.  Storms are weather.  Metaphorical storms that need weathering like illness or loss   . . . what […]
